My Little Slice of Paradise

If you live in Northern California (or, more specifically, Sacramento or San Francisco), then you’ve undeniably heard of Lake Tahoe.

If you haven’t, well.. You’re clearly living underneath some sort of rock somewhere in the middle of the ocean on a deserted island.

For those of you who are dwelling on that deserted island, Lake Tahoe is a breathtakingly beautiful pool of blue water nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains. It lies smack dab on the state line that separates California from Nevada. And if you’ve ever had the luxury of visiting, you probably never wanted to leave.

Okay, well, that’s my own personal feeling.

To say that Lake Tahoe is my happy place is an understatement.

Driving up the highway into the mountains, I can literally feel my day-to-day stresses evaporating into the thinning, pine scented air. Even my distaste for slow drivers can’t bring down that consuming feel-good vibe.

If you’re a visitor to this enchanted place, you’re more than likely going to be staying at one of the stateline casinos in either North or South Lake. Or perhaps you have the privilege of bunking with friends who have a house somewhere along the lakeline. Whichever the case, there is plenty to do and you will undeniably enjoy yourself.

When I’m in Lake Tahoe it is impossible for me to sleep in. Even my subconscious doesn’t want to miss a second of this magical place. And, true to form, this morning I was up at seven, bright eyed and busy tailed and ready to start my day.

And as I sit on my deck, looking out at the glassy water and enjoying a cup of French Roast coffee (caffeinated, of course), I’m thinking that this place is just too special not to share.

I mean, sure, Tahoe, is absolutely beautiful no matter where you stay. But Glenbrook.. Well, it is its own special kind of place. When you’re here, you don’t even feel like you’re in Tahoe.

If I’m being completely honest, Glenbrook is basically my drug. In Glenbrook I feel no pain, I have no sadness, I have no worries. Nothing else in the world exists except for this place and everything it has to offer. The days here feel too short because no matter what I’m doing, I’m euphoric.

I’ve had the luxury of traveling to other countries, and, yes, there is nothing like submerging thyself in another culture, BUT, there really is no place like Glenbrook.

It would be selfish of me not to share my absolute favorite place on the entire planet earth with you.

If you’re looking for a place to stay in Lake Tahoe (and you have deep pockets – forgot to mention that part), it would be shameful not to look up Glenbrook.

I can guarantee you that you will not regret it.
